Park (P)review: Buescher State Park - Smithville, TX

Park (P)review
We haven't camped here yet, but I've driven around and checked it out!

Buescher State Park

*Say it like the locals: "Bisher, like fisher"  Yeah, I was "butcher"-ing it.
*I was impressed with how very quiet this park was.  Rustling of the leaves, stunning kinda quiet.
*Water and Electric sites: Site 22 was the only one that really jumped out at me - small sites, but a relatively small campground, too.
*Park Rd 1C at the back of the park is a connecting road (about 10 miles winding and hilly) that will take you over to Bastrop State Park.  Buescher was saved from the destruction of the wildfires last summer, but Bastrop wasn't.  It's a chilling thing to drive Park Rd 1 from one park to another - you just suddenly come upon the fire line.
*That being said, firewood is for sale at the Park Headquarters

We stayed here November '14: Work. Life. Balance.

  1. We loved this park. When we camped here, we were the ONLY campers in the entire park! Of course, that was before the horrible fires. Lots of loud frogs at night, though!
